Again in Bali not enough time taken by staff to explain the traditional methods. More focus on getting the tourist into the showroom to purchase. But it is beautiful material to see and some of the products are cheaper then retail in Australia e.g. scarf though wasn't sure they were made on the premises even though assured they were.

Sari Amerta Koleksi or Batik factory has a handful of workers spinning fabric by the side of a large emporium. Service is pathetic - the saleswomen are disinterested and indifferent. The clothing & souvenirs are much more expensive that what you would get outside.

It is interesting to be aware that Batik form of art is different in Indonesia from India. The only common thread is the use of wax to dye colors. But the printing and art form are distinct in each country. The factory also sells products made. It is quite expensive but we bought a few things as souvenirs.

this place was one of the pitstops while heading towards ubud from seminyak. It's quite interesting to see how Batik was made by them using a machine. visited the store and get to see all kinds of Batik. the items are a little pricey. do drop by and take a look during your day trip while heading towards north of...

My husband and I visited the Batik factory as part of our day tour and we weren't expecting much, however I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed our visit. The souvenirs are good quality and we picked up a few things to take back to NZ. Yes the staff do follow you around however I didn't find it threatening or think... More

outside the shop you can see the way they traditionally make the products that they want to sell you - which seems reasonable to me and quite interesting to watch. The shop was ok but when will they learn that for a lot of people being followed every step of the way is off-putting and can stop you buying (not... More

As others such attractions in Bali you are first taken trough the process of making the product you are offered to buy in the shop. You are shown each of the stages of making the fabric with actual people executing the stages in front of you. The shop then offers you a wide variety of product each with a colourful... More

This was an interesting place to visit in that you could see how delicately the thread saris, dresses etc were produced and the techniques used and you were given an A4 sheet with some information on which was good however we were not interactively shown around the workers and we couldn't really engage with them. The show room has a... More

Visited this place on our way to Ubud. Nothing special except that there's staff demonstrating how to weave the batik. it's interesting to look at for about 5 minutes. Went inside to look around but it's a tourist trap. everything is very costly and it's very dark inside the display area. However, if you wanna ensure that you are purchasing... More
